This month I am crossing the 500 Euro mark of income since I started spreading music online. A joke compared to professional bands, but for my type of music that's an awesome threshold to cross.

That's really good, actually. Congrats! It's a milestone for sure.

It's since July 2013 when I first started the Alpha Drone bandcamp. But it's speeding up, the first 250 took five years, the second took one and a half years.

Signing up to CDBaby has done a lot. They upload to Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Google Music, Deezer, etc all the streaming services, always a few cents every day, sometimes more.

congratulations, making any money from your own music these days is an accomplishment, esp for such a niche artist who doesn't tour (pardon me if I got things wrong on either)... :) if you don't mind me asking, have you paid for promo work? I'm not asking about whatever percentage all those portals and distributors charge/keep as default, but if you've paid anyone to place an ad or make fb posts more visible, for.ex?

Going by advertisements I get, I do not trust their targeting at all, so I seek out places to advertise myself. I did pay for a promo thing on last.fm once, years ago, and I think it actually had an effect. It would put the artist in the "similar artists" radio station of selected artists on the site, but I dunno if anyone still streams last.fm radios in this day and age, and the music manager portal seems to have vanished anyway. Probably possible to do something like it on other streaming services but I haven't looked into it yet.

Amazingly and against all expectations my Youtube channel was approved for monetization just now.

I'm working on a sequel to Martial Industrial Metal, which has overtaken the Alpha Drone debut to be my most successful release. It will be titled Martial Industrial Metal II (bonus points for creativity) and it will sound a lot more like the title says than the first one does, basically being In Slaughter Natives with riffs and a bit of Wappenbund with riffs.

Also working on a new Alpha Drone song that'll basically be pop music.

Currently, I'm looking for a drum throne. Choosing between Tama and DW Drum Workshop. Maybe some of you have already bought these thrones and can share the experience. Here is the review on them https://pickadvisor.org/best-drum-throne/ Both have quite good quality and are promised to be comfortable in use, but anyway real personal experience inspires more confidence.

Just released my third full-length with Soliloquium today. Death/doom metal with a progressive/melodic edge to it. Really happy with this one!

Full-length YouTube stream:


Everything is available on https://soliloquium.bandcamp.com too :)
